Weatherby ammunition remains true to the concept Roy Weatherby developed in the 1940s, the faster a bullet traveled, the better. The flatter it would shoot, the less it would drop, the harder it would hit, the better its terminal performance. At the same time, our ammunition also takes advantage of the latest in controlled expansion bullets which are capable of harnessing the higher velocities to create a cartridge that provides the ultimate in penetration, large wound channels and more one shot kills.
The .270 Weatherby Magnum is a turbo charged version of the popular .270 Winchester. In 1945, Roy Weatherby shortened the .300 H&H Magnum, blew out the body, necked it down to accept a .270 bullet and gave hunters a flatter shooting, harder hitting .270; ideal for long range, medium size game.
